Nej, det är inte den sköna söderjycken som ska bli spel i #Ubisofts regi, utan den sjätte filmen med Stallone som ringnötare. Inledningsvis verkar det bara bli en Playstation Portable-titel lagom till filmens premiär, men jag skulle inte bli förvånad om även andra plattformar får sig en rak höger av ettor och nollor.
